"I exist in two places, here and where you are." Margaret Atwood, Canadian novelist and poet.

Mixed media portrait

"You called my name?" Mixed Media in Strathmore Mixed Media Visual Journal.

As I started painting in my sketchbook, this young woman appeared on paper.

I like to imagine what the people I paint are trying to say, or what their eyes might be seeing that I cannot see.

She has just turned around very quickly...has someone called her name? Maybe she imagines a voice she longs to hear.

Her inquisitive look might suggest she is about to discover someone who has been on her mind for a long time. What a lovely surprise that would be.

Has she existed in two places...here and in someone else's mind, or heart?
